The HX-CH6601A receives GPS L1/L2, GLONASS L1/L2 and BeiDou B1/B2 signals. It offers exceptional pattern control, polarization purity and high efficiency in a very compact form factor.

The antenna is equipped with a high-quality, durable IP65 sealed radome housing and terminated with a SMA connector, which has high gain and wide beam width to ensure the signal receiving performance of satellites at a low elevation angle.

The 25-gram antenna is designed for applications across various markets, including aerial photographs, telemetry technology, disaster monitoring, traffic patrol and security monitoring.

HX-CH6601A offers a significant improvements compared to its predecessor HX-CH4601A GPS/GLONASS L1L2. The built-in low noise amplifier (LNA) and filtering offer up to 35-decibel gain with a single 50-Ohm SMA connector.

Customers samples of HX-CH6601A are now available.
